Real Madrid regained their position at the top of La Liga but not before being put through their paces by a spirited Leganes in a pulsating 4-2 victory.

The small suburban club's 11,000-seater Estadio Butarque is sold out amid huge expectation among locals keen to see superstars Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos, with the official match poster hyping the clash of little Lega against the "extra terrestrials" from the Bernabeu.
